Toure made 48 appearances in the two seasons since Guardiola was appointed Man City manager
This is according to Toure’s agent, Dmitry Selyuk, who has made it clear his client wants to remain in England to prove to City manager Pep Guardiola that he remains good enough to perform at the highest level of the game.
And Selyuk has made the incredible claim that whoever wishes to sign Toure will only have to pay £1-a-week to secure the 35-year-old’s services this summer.
Speaking to Sport 24, Selyuk said: “Yaya has many offers from different countries, where they are ready to pay a lot of money, but we decided to dedicate the next season to Guardiola. And to prove and show the fans of Manchester City that Yaya has not finished with football.
“He is full of energy and wants to play this season in England.
“At a time when huge sums are being spent in England for the purchase of football players, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move as a free agent to any English club of the top six with a salary of one-pound-a-week, but with a bonus system based on certain successes
“And never before has a top footballer with leadership qualities rejected any club, especially when they don’t have to pay for it.”
Toure played for Guardiola at Barcelona before the pair reunited at Man City when the Catalan was appointed manager in 2016. In Guardiola’s two seasons at the Etihad, Toure made a combined 48 appearances for City.
